How do I find my stream URL?

Centova has recently updated their control panel, in the process (we are unsure why they did this, frankly) they have removed the ‘stream URL’ section which used to be found on the ‘Quick Links’ page. Perhaps that is what brings you here. No worries. If you need the right streaming URL for an html5 radio player generator or mobile app we have got you covered.

NOTE: We recommend Internet radio broadcasters use HTTPS/SSL-enabled streaming URLs for better compatibility with Chrome and other modern browsers.

So how do I find my direct stream URL?

This is still really easy, the format of the URL is: http:// (or https://) hostname:port/mountpoint

So for example, if you’re on our Falcon server, your URL would look something like this:

Where is the hostname/server name address, 8000 is the port number, and /stream is the mount point.

How do I find my Hostname or IP and port?

If you make your way to ‘Quick Links’ inside Centova, you will see a title named “Your streaming server index page“.

Here you can find your hostname or IP and port numbers.

But what about the mount point?

In most cases, the mount point is going to be /stream as it is the default.

However, some advanced stations have set up multiple mount points (e.g. additional streams for mobile users). Simply replacing /stream with the desired mount point name (e.g. /mobilestream) would fetch this stream.
